A New Project Begins… [MSDT Capstone]

B.O.L.T.S. (Bug Out Location Tactical Shelter) Course Description: The MS_DT Capstone is an intensive individual and/or team-based research project that will be undertaken under direction of thecapstone faculty and intended to be related to the research of that faculty. Emphasis is placed on developing projects that result in fullscale material prototypes, fully developed softwares, and/or architectural installations. The project will include research into innovative aspects of applying digital technologies. This work will be executed collaboratively in a format defi ned by the scope and demands of the project. Each participant will be responsible for producing an individual document that includes … Continue reading A New Project Begins… [MSDT Capstone]

Final Design Proposal

This proposal lays out the trajectory of research based around the fabrication of light-weight printable structures formulated from a composite of plastic and fabric. The work proposes to build upon the current vein of research in extruded plastics to create a viable method of construction utilizing this method of fabrication. The work this semester is being based off the calibration of the fabrication procedures develop during the last semester’s work. It is being advanced through research in increased fidelity of the e printing process as well as further exploration into the panelization and surfacing possibilities afforded by this system. The … Continue reading Final Design Proposal
